PTHREAD_ATTR_GETSCOPE(3) Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_ATTR_GETSCOPE(3) NAME pthread_attr_getscope -- get and set the contention scope attribute LIBRARY POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread) SYNOPSIS #include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t * restrict attr, int * restrict contentionscope); int pthread_attr_setscope(pthread_attr_t *attr, int contentionscope); DESCRIPTION The pthread_attr_getscope() and pthread_attr_setscope() functions get and set, respectively, the contention scope attribute in the attr object. The contentionscope parameter specifies the scheduling contention scope of a thread. It is only possible to set the scope of a thread before the thread is created. There are two possible contention scopes: PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM The thread will contend for CPU resources with all other processes and threads in the system. Generally this means that the user thread is bound directly to the kernel scheduling for its entire lifetime. PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS The thread will contend with other threads with the same scope attribute. In general, this means that all PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS threads are grouped together and this group of threads contends for CPU resources. This is commonly seen to require a hybrid (``M:N'') threading model in order to multiplex the user and kernel space scheduling. Only PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM is supported in NetBSD. RETURN VALUES Upon successful completion, both functions return 0. Otherwise an error number is returned to indicate the error. ERRORS No errors are defined for pthread_attr_getscope(). The pthread_attr_setscope() function shall fail if: [EINVAL] Invalid parameter. SEE ALSO pthread_attr(3), csf(9) STANDARDS Both functions conform to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (``POSIX.1'').
